When I ask you in the pre-operative consult if there are any medical problems that I should be aware of, your bleeding disorder is included in that.
Please don't tell me as I am leaving the room "By the way, a doctor tells me I have a bleeding problem."
And then when I ask if you know the name: "No."
And then when I ask if you bleed too much or clot too much "I don't know."
For some reason, as a surgeon, I CARE ABOUT THAT!!!!!!!!!
Fortunately, you knew the name of the blood doctor and I could get a letter from him.
Yes, this has happened to me recently.
